An Indian Woman Became a Mother at Age 70 with IVF

A woman who says she is 70 years old has given birth to a baby boy with the help of in vitro fertilization (IVF) in India.

The footage, filmed on October 13, shows the old woman, who is sitting next to her husband, holding the newborn baby and speaking with the medical staff. A man takes a picture of her to capture the emotional moment.

The Indian couple has been married for 45 years. 70-year-old Jivunben Rabari and her 75-year-old husband Maldhari tried to have a baby for many years before using assisted reproductive technology.

The elderly woman didn't have her ID to prove her age, however, she told reporters that she was 70 years old. Local media outlets have also reported that she is 70.

Dr. Naresh Bhanushali said: "When they first came to us, we told them that they couldn't have a child at such an old age, but they insisted. They said that many of their family members dit it as well. This is one of the rarest cases I have ever seen!".

The couple, who is illiterate, lives in the remote village of Kemora in the Indian State of Gujurat.
